The eastern barred bandicoot (Perameles gunnii) is one of three bandicoot species in the genus Perameles. It has a short tail and three to four whitish bars across the rump.

This species is nocturnal. It emerges from its nest at dusk to forage for a variety of invertebrates including crickets, beetles and earthworms. During the day it rests in a grass-lined nest. When foraging, it uses its long nose to probe deep into the soil and then digs eagerly when it locates food.

Did you know gestation of the eastern barred bandicoot lasts just 12 days — one of the shortest gestation periods of any mammal?
